    Thanks, but I don't think the noise is from the brake pad. I went took it to a workshop but they could not figure what it is. The noise starts when I have driven for about 30miles.

    Am sorry you are really very helpful. Do you think its the 4-Wheel Drive Hub that has a problem?

The noise is almost for sure the brake pad being worn out and metal to metal with the brake rotor, if this is the case don't drive the car until it is fixed, very dangerous.

When driving noise over 30 mph


What kind of noise is it? From where does it come? Front wheel, left or right? or rear wheels, left or right? If your vehicle is very old, then if could simply be wearing out in which case differential, trans or wheel bearing noises are very common. Is it a high squeal or a low grumbling noise? Is it a grinding noise?

Rumbling & grinding under front end


Watch out! You might have a loose wheel! Check those wheel nuts. If not, a loose brake caliper, or last if not least, a bad wheel bearing. Don't drive it until you find out what the heck is wrong! Could be dangerous.

How to check front bearings on 2000 kia sportage


hi there, there are two ways to check your bearings, 1, is to jack up the vehicle so the wheel is free of the ground and to check for any play or roughness in the bearing by spinning the wheel, if the bearing is worn then you will hear a droning noise, 2 is to drive along a quiet road, at a speed where you can hear the noise, gently turn the steering from left to right so the vehile load is being shifted from one side to the other, if you have a wheel bearing fault the noise's pitch will alter,hope this helps
